Diamond cutting edges
Awhile ago there was a question about diamond cutting edges on woodworking tools. In a recent magazine I saw an advertisement for such blades.
This is a link to a company that makes diamond cutting tools. The main site link is:
Then click on 'Saw Blades and Hoggers'
In the middle of the web page be sure to click on
"Gladu Diamond / Carbide Panel System"
for a really eye opening analysis.
Aparently these blades are a narrow application product and intended for particle board / melamine / HPL uses. And while we're talking about it... I wonder what is involved in sharpening a diamond cutting edge.
One of the things that I've noticed over the years is that when a company is selling based upon 'Cost Savings', the initial cost of the product is prohibitive.

RE: Diamond cutting edges
Only thing that cuts diamonds is badder diamonds... or enough more of 'em that for the price of a few you cut a few.
That stuff's not for me... I'm fine with a diamond wheel on my tile wetsaw, and with a Diafold for touching up steel & carbide edges, and with a single-point grinding wheel dresser... but I'm not about to use diamonds for cutting wood - not in any shape or form.
...OR put 'em on the soles of my shoes, either, thank you very much Paul Simon. :)
